    Multi-Level Hell

    You know what i'm talkin' about.

    Multi-level hell. The things that make enemies out of friends and families alike.

    Who drives you crazy trying to sell you crap?

    My neighbor sells Shaklee products! I want to invent a spring loaded combination catapult/welcome met, because he's also an Adventist and we seem to be on his to do list for conversion from Catholicism!

    The only people that drive me crazy trying to sell me crap are Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons who think I should join up. Trying to get me to buy into a religion is something I find highly annoying.

    Just tell him you're no longer Catholic. You're now a member of the Super Adventure Club and you can;t talk right now,because you need to go slaughter something as a ritual sacrifice, while you hook electrodes to your testicles to ride yourself of pure thoughts!
    Just Do It..

    I've been thinking about asking him to a "Black Mass", but I don't know where any are!

    I've also considered telling him I'm now a Crowleyite and invite him to a Pantheistic Hedonist event!

    Interesting point you make. Was Judas a sinner or a saint?

    Did he condem himself to hell with a kiss of betrayal to Jesus, or did he assure himself a place in heaven when he fulfilled the prophecy that assured the crucifixion?

    We do Herbalife, but it's 99% because we like the products. I've been here in Foo almost 2 years, and this is the first I think I've mentioned it. I'm like that in person too. Nobody runs away when they see us coming, or doesn't answer their phone when our number pops up on caller ID - at least not because they say "oh No, they're trying to sell us something."
    The search for inner peace continues...

    And here's your answer:

    "Jesus replied 'The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. The Son of man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born'" (Matthew 26:23-24)

    On the front door of my house I have a small index card neatly written out:

    "No soliciting please. I am out of work and have no funds to buy anything from you. The only cash I have available is for the food on the table and for my Rottweiler's huge bowl. If I DID have money I wouldn't be living in this ghetto where solicitors frequent."

    I have not had one ring the bell since. They APPROACH, but they don't knock or ring the bell.

    religious door-knockers expescting me to see the way or whatever they call it this week.

    I like screwing with them, no offense to any one that does that...but if I tell them I already found a sifferent path with god, and they keep going on, I'm going to give them as much offense as I've taken.

    And magazine vendors annoy me to no end. I really am quite sadistic when it comes to those people. Some dude that's obviously inhaled half a damn pot plant in the past hour comes up and is talking about his future.....dude, first nobody who gives a damn about his future consumes more pot than your body can process....two, when you stutter ont eh word college, it doesn't say much.....three, I'll take a subscription of Motor&Track...I hope you do have it, as it's been years since I saw one.

    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
    "Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    Interesting.

    Tho' without the betrayal, Jesus would never have been cruxified, the prophecys would have gone unfulfilled and Jesus would have just been another Joe.

    I have had people try pushing various multi-level stuff on me. One high school teacher I had who was mediocre at best, after I graduated, he phoned a couple other people and myself, calling it an opportunity for only his highest performing students... and he was trying to be coy, hawk Brand XXX to us and not tell the company he was trying to make downlevel slaves for.

    Nothing against the actual products -- they tend to be good. I dislike people who think they can use existing relationships (student-teacher, friend to friend) as avenues for selling stuff and making money from. My friends are my friends, not people whom I would try "putting one over" and making a buck from.

    Products are OK, just not good value for the money. Go to http://www.mlmsurvivor.com and download the "Merchants of Deception" book. Really gives you the inside track on MLM schemes.

    *I* know that, and *you* that, but I'll bet *he* doesn't know that. Do the blue-Mohawk look for real when you "invite" him, and maybe add some black nail polish, and I'll bet you can convince this guy that you are the Antichrist's first cousin.
